Azja Pryor, former girlfriend to Chris Tucker, was a regular
guest at Michael's Neverland Valley Ranch and had also been
in close contact to the Arvizo family, who accused Michael of
child molestation. Michael Jackson was found innocent on all
charges on June 13, 2005, but as long as the media casts shadows,
we must all continue to speak the truth and honor those who
step up to support justice. Following Michael's tragic death,
Azja Pryor wrote a stunningly heart-felt letter to the accuser
and his family who's false allegations forever changed The King
of Pop's life as well as the lives of his millions of fans around
Here, the MJFC is proud to present a letter Azja Pryor wrote
especially for the MJFC members and also a reprint of her initial
Thank you so very much, Azja, for your openness and courage!!!
OPEN LETTER TO A MICHAEL JACKSON ACCUSER (THE ARVIZO FAMILY)
Subpoenaed by the defense in 2005, Azja Pryor writes open letter
to Jackson's 2nd accuser
Dear Gavin, Star, Davellin, and Janet:
After Michael's tragic death last week, I have to say that all
the negative feelings I've had towards your family following
the outrageous claims made by you Gavin and your mother Janet--against
Michael--came back to me tenfold. The pain, disappointment,
anger, and betrayal I feel towards you simply cannot be put
into words. You have shown me that your greed, lies, and personal
gain override any morals your family claims to have;
and you have proven yourselves to be the kind of people capable
of turning your back on the very person who came to your rescue
when you were most desperate.
The fact that you falsely accused Michael of the most heinous
of acts, and made his life a living hell in what would become
his last years is unthinkable; and I am sure some would say,
unforgivable. In your attempts to destroy him once again, you,
Gavin, accused the man you called your best friend
of the one thing that you (and everyone else) knew would completely
turn his life inside out. You took the one thing we all know
that Michael cared about most in life--children, especially
children who are suffering, and you tried to turn it into a
bad thing. You Janet, as a parent, allowed this, encouraged
this, and went forward with the awful lies in an attempt to
destroy Michael Jackson and swindle money from him.
Shame on you!
This man did nothing but help your family in their darkest hour.
I know Michael was just like my family. We were all pulled into
your woeful stories and shared your family's plight as Gavin
fought for his life during his battle with cancer. Gavin, you
told me that Michael's love helped cure you of cancer. Your
entire family praised Michael privately to everyone who would
listen, yet turned against him so viciously in public. I have
remained silent for many years, but I can no longer do so. Right
now I struggle to find the words to adequately write this letter,
as I am so filled with anger towards you and pain for the Jackson
You call yourself Christians. If this is true I call on you,
Gavin, and your mother Janet to finally do the right thing for
Michael in death that you never did during his days here on
earth. You need to completely exonerate Michael's name and legacy
from the awful, disgusting claims you made against him. Claims
and allegations that you and I both know are completely false
and utterly ridiculous. Whatever your motives at the time to
create such accusations are now minute and unimportant.
It is much bigger than you.
We are speaking on this man's legacy; a man who positively touched
lives around the world. A man who is arguably the greatest entertainer
the world will ever know. Michael is someone who shared in your
family's pain; opened his home to you and included you in his
very own family. He was a human being who never deserved any
Gavin and Janet, you can change your identity and try to hide
from the public scrutiny, but ultimately, you cannot hide from
the wrath of God's judgment. This is the right thing to do.
It is the very least you can do for Michael, his children, and
his legacy. Gavin you are now 19 years old, no longer an impressionable
young boy under you mother's guidance, nor are you a pawn in
this grand scheme to assassinate Michael's character. I know
your heart, and I know that you are capable of doing what is
right. Clear Michael's name of your ugly accusationsonce and
for all. You owe it to him. You owe it to his family. And you
owe it to God. Let's finally give Michael the ability to completely
rest in peace.

Interview Azja Pryor gave on the same subject:
Pryor: Accusers Shall "Do The Right Thing"
(20-7-2009) In 2005, Azja Pryor testified in the Michael Jackson
molestation trial which ended in Michael's acquittal on all
counts. Pryor is the mother of Chris Tuckers son. She
said she spent a lot of time with Michaels accuser and
his family and now has some harsh words for them.
I dont know how they sleep at night
that they accused someone who they called their friend
of the ugliest, most heinous thing you can say about a human
Its time for [the accuser] to finally stand up and
do the right thing. He is an adult. He knows
always known that Michael never touched him, Michael never abused
Feeling betrayed, Pryor called the accusers 2003 claim
that Michael Jackson molested him outrageous.
Last week, Pryor wrote an open letter to the accuser, asking
him and his family to step forward and clear Michael Jacksons
They told me that Michael was the one who helped cure
this child of cancer, Pryor recounted of her conversations
with the family.
Pryor only met Michael Jackson once at his trial
but the entertainer hosted her and Chris Tuckers sons
birthday at Neverland. Pryor said she and her son spent a lot
of time with the accuser and his family, lending their support
during his cancer battle.
When asked why she believes Michael Jackson didnt molest
his accuser, Pryor said:
I was present when [the accuser and his sibling] were
at Neverland. I spoke to these children several times a day,
a day when this was supposedly happening.
One night, when Pryor spent the night at Neverland, she claims
the kids were begging to stay in Michael Jacksons room,
even though he wasnt there.
When I thought of what the accuser was saying Michael
did, I thought to myself What child would want to go into
the room where these awful things were happening to them?
I think that they felt like Michael should have done more for
Maybe what Michaels camp was willing
to do was not enough. I dont know, but somewhere around
that period of time something went wrong.
